Kehlani is no stranger to creating music that pulls at people’s emotions. Recently recruited for the “Suicide Squad” soundtrack she trades in her bright and bubbly sound for something darker and more intimate as she looks for a “Gangsta” to keep her satisfied.

Premiering  this morning on Beats 1, Zane Lowe spoke to the film’s director David Ayer who spoke on the tone of the track. “It just blends into the fabric of the film,” he says. “It speaks a lot to relationships and making a choice and at the same time how there’s also power in surrendering to somebody.”
